| Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - PASS IT ON |
Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead
author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the
American College of Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur in the
day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night,
when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual
happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to
show that sleep apnea is to blame.
1. If you take
an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The
reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart
attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be
strongest in your system.
Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice toknow.Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks -
are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left
arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as
nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur
Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.
- Call 911.
- Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.
- Say "heart attack!"
- Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.
- Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and
...DO NOT LIE DOWN!
